USDA Roane/Loudon Farm Service Agency reminds producers that enrollment for Average Crop Revenue Election Program or the traditional Direct and Counter-cyclical Program  begins Jan. 23 and runs through June 1.

“Farmers in Roane or Loudon County who are interested in enrolling in these programs need to add this important deadline to their list of ‘must-do’ jobs,” said Jane Rhinehart of the Roane/Loudon FSA. “Producers should contact the local county office to set up appointments.”

Appointments may be made by stopping by the FSA office at 424 N. Kentucky St., Room 110, Kingston; or calling 376-2392, Ext. 104.

Annual contracts are required to be signed to receive program benefits.

All signatures of producers receiving a share in DCP and ACRE payments are required by June 1.
